Passage du Caire, 15 minutes on foot from 9 Hotel République
With its 360 meters long, the Passage du Caire is the longest gallery of the capital. Open to the public in 1789, the oriental influence of its name and the decor of the facade are the signs of the real Napoleon’s passion for Egypt.
A place of many stories at the heart of Le Marais
According to a legend, some parts of the paving were taken from memorial headstones from the nuns of Filles-Dieu Convent. In the heart of the Sentier, the Passage du Caire appears today as an essential point for fashion wholesalers.
